right tea party members, republicans breaking ranks with their house majority leader eric cantor to vote for a plan, 85 house republicans voted for the deal, 151 republicans voted against the deal, including cantor, and that didn't sit well with the tea party. amy kremer tweeted this "i'm extremely disgusted with what happened in the house tonight. there will be consequences." and if you scan any of the big national paper this is morning, the headline might be that yes a deal was reached but how we got there is also making news. "the los angeles times" proclaimed "fiscal cliff plan clears house with gop divided." "the new york post" called it "leap of faith, gop breaks ranks to pass bill." jeff landry was on cnn's "early start" and acknowledged the party tension. >> we have to have a fight to determine what republicans actually stand for now. i think that what you saw november 6th was the fact that the republican establishment can't figure out what they stand for. >> over the next two months we could see a lot more political tension, that's for sure. the deal still has not addressed the
learned that house republicans may be staging a revolt. eric cantor and his peers rallying for amendment. namely, they want to add $330 billion in spending cuts to the bill. take it to 5:00 p.m. yesterday. the house gop meets again. by now, the senate has warned them they will not entertain amendments. and sure enough, the gop opposition can't gather enough support to pass those amendments anyways. which brings us to late last night. just after 11:00 p.m., house members vote on the senate measure as is. they approve it 257-167 sending it to the president's desk. it's interesting to know that 16 democrats voted against the measure while 85 republicans voted for it. >>> behind the scenes, the level of tension you can imagine between the party leaders extremely high evolving into nasty name-calling. harry reid had publicly said that speaker boehner was running a, quote, dictatorship in the house but this morning, politico is reporting on friday when the men saw one another some the lobby of the white house, they reportedly told reid to go blank yourself. politico said that multiple sources
and will do it. a lot of people looked at that and said is there a rift, is this eric cantor positioning himself for a coup. i think that's fairly unlikely. the house speaker boehner certainly has plenty of support going into his election tomorrow where he's expected to be reelected the speaker of the house when the 113th congress convenes. so i think folks are reading a little into that. but certainly it was eric cantor being a little who are conservatives. >> many are very angry about this deal. we saw this tweet from the tea party expression, amy cramer said i'm disgusted with what happened in the house last night. there will be consequences. what will the blow back be, do you think? >> in the short term, i don't think there's much at all. and certainly many folks believe that the tea party may be losing steam if anything under this new deal. but remember, as brianna pointed out, we'll be back here again in march. you have the debt limit, the government maxed out its credit card december 31st. treasury is now taking extraordinary measures for the government to pay its bills. you have

. this is a speaker that can't deliver his own troops, and eric cantor can't conceal or hide his personal ambition, if boehner looks fragile or doesn't want to continue to be a weakenedwe speaker, cantor will be moree than glad to take up the reins. >> is the irony, about 20 seconds, that boehner appears to be the ehmoderate in all of thi? >> yeah, boehner is it the diplomate, let's put it thatth way, or is at least interested in greg things done, the -- getting things done. the same thing for mcdonnelling but there aren't too many people that fit that moniker. >>> the children who escaped the connecticut school shooting prepare to return to school in a neighboring town.hb >> also ahead, a masking gunman stop a delivery truck driver an steals several packages. now dc police want to know ifkn this robbery is connected to a similar crime. >> can being overweight protect you eagainst premature death?prt the surprising results of a newe study. study.  >>> it is playoff week for the red kings, the team hit -- redskins, the team hypotheticalo the practice field -- hit the pract
boehner had to put it on the floor that angered a lot of republicans. newscast his number two, eric cantor, the majority leader voted no, and john boehner voted yes on final passage. now, jim, tomorrow is the formally election of the speaker. he's already been nominated. usually a formality. we have no reason to believe otherwise. but you've got to believe that somewhere down the line, he may be weak end here. that's why he's already looking forward to another fiscal clive. >> let's go back to the sandy spending bills. how did something like this happen? a lot of people are shaking their heads. did time just get away from it? >> that's part of t congress has a bad habit putting off the tough decisions until the last minute. they debated and voted on a p k package thought was vitally important. the problem was there were no offsets. it wasn't paid for. just emergency spending, and it would have added onto the debt. the senate passed it very late in the weekend, sent it over to the house of representatives. this was an indication they would put it on the floor, and that bill was passed, sen
notice how eric cantor, the house majority leader voted on the fiscal cliff deal last night. he voted against it. some have interpreted that to be premonition, an indication perhaps there will be some sort of a challenge to the speakership of john boehner. however we have heard nobody speak publicly, nobody speak on the record in that regard. keep in mind if his speakership were to be challenged would require a vote not just of the republican conference but the entire house of representatives. jenna: big question whether or not a change in leadership would elicit different results that is conversation yet to be had in the coming weeks. >> so you try. jenna: doug, thank you very much. jon: so the white house and congress knew of the self-imposed deadline for more than 17 months and they still managed to blow past it. finally approving a tax deal last night that doesn't seriously address the spending cuts or the nation's ballooning deficit. so who wins and who loses with this deal? talk about it with jonah gold perg, editor-at-large at "the national review" and a fox news contributor. b
it and send it back is what eric cantor and others wanted. the problem with sending it back is there would be no one to send it to. the senate left the building. the house would have gone back and said we're going to keep our apbldz in. what speaker boehner did is join the minority of republicans. he voted, so 85 republicans said yes, but 172 said no. essentially they violated their own unwritten hastert rule and used the majority of democrats to pass this bill. longtime conservatives see it as a rau for the president. >>steve: even in the leadership of the republican party you've got john boehner and paul ryan voting for it. then you've got eric cantor, the majority whip, voting against it. at the core, all the republicans had to hold their nose because they do not as a party like the idea of taxes going up on anybody. now the way it stands is if you are very successful and you make at least $400,000 a year, your taxes are going to go up to about 40%. for everybody watching this program now, your payroll taxes are going up. last year it was about 4.2% exactly, and starting this morning it
on the house side. speaker boehner voting for the bill. and eric cantor voting against the bill. the house whip voting against the bill and paul ryan voting for the bill. this is a real split. >> it is. it shows the schism and a real good demonstration of why it was so difficult for speaker boehner to negotiate a bigger, grander deal with the president. he was unable to get his own deal through the house a few weeks ago, and the negotiated deal that passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. 89 votes in the senate, didn't get the majority of the republicans in the house to sign on. what you are seeing is the difficulty played out for everyone to see of how difficulty it is for speaker boehner to get these kinds of bills passed through the house. >> quickly, given the schism that you outlined, this is the last day of the 112th congress and tomorrow is the big day for john boehner. how is it looking for them? >> i think it looks fine for him. a lot of grumbling among folks. he allowed everyone to vote their conscious. no one got forced into voting for something they didn't want to. we avoided t
eric cantor was with him all along, still is, and they're pointing the finger of blame at speaker john boehner, openly encouraging the idea that there's a rift between the two. >> there's a squabble, obviously, between speaker boehner and leader cantor, they voted separately on the fiscal cliff. since cantor had taken a lead role here some have speculated that boehner wasn't as friendly to it as he might have otherwise been. >> reporter: cantor's office tells me that the two are in communication and that cantor support the speaker boehner. the two are scheduled to meet with the new york and new jersey delegations to discuss sandy aid in less than an hour, megyn. >> megyn: shannon, thank you. >> we're going to hit every single recommendation that's been put forward. some individuals have been held accountable inside of the state department and what i've said is that we are going to fix this to make sure that this does not happen again. because these are folks that i send into the field. we understand that there are dangers involved, but you know, when he read the report and it confirms
boehner voted yes, his number two majority leader eric cantor voted no and there will be another fiscal fight over the next two months, that's when military cuts are due. they kicked them down the road. that battle will now be joined over the next 60 days and we'll see what we get in the end after that. arthel: there is a limit on how many ad advil you can take in one day. bill: then you have to shift to ae alieve. we talked about military cuts and cuts to medicare, none of that was addressed in the drama we just watched unfold, none of it. arthel: no. let's get to this now the medical scare for america's top diplomat, secretary of state hillary clinton remains in a new york hospital where she is being treated with blood thinners for a blood clot lodged between her skull and her brain. molly henneberg live in washington with more. >> reporter: doctors say secretary clinton is making excellent progress, is in good spirits and should make a full recovery. she remains in new york presbyterian hospital as doctors monitor that brain clos. the the blood thinners should resolve it. clinton did
: two things, why did they harp on taxes so much if they were going to cave? >> eric: i don't know. >> bob: secondly, how bad is the riff in the republican party? >> eric: very bad. 100%. you are pointing it out. bad riff, especially when cantor and his group votes no and boehner and his group votes yes. house divided. a lot of conservatives watch, and they go to drug import. they put up a poll today should boehner step down or be replaced? i looked and it said 85% of the respondent said replace boehner. it's an issue. issue on the right. they have to address it. >> dana: when things don't feel like they are going well, are you satisfied with that particular person? then everyone says no. what is amazing to me of the fiscal cliff, it avoided all the real issues. president obama in his statement last night, one thing he said is we are not going to tax our way out of the entitlement spending problem. why have you not done anything for five years? now he says he is going to try to get more tax increases without being -- with a caucus that says we're not going to do anything on entitle
